James L Murtagh Auctioneers are offering a 94ac former dairy farm at Ballintue, Ballynacargy, Co Westmeath for sale by private treaty. The asking price is €650,000.

This farm is leased out with an annual rent of approximately €25,000. This means it could be of interest to an investor buyer.

The A-roofed slatted shed holds 32 adult cattle. The round-roofed shed and lean-tos contain cubicles, calving pens and the milking parlour.

Located just off the L1902, the property is 2km from Ballynacargy village. The farm has extensive frontage on to the road that runs beside the Royal Canal.

Layout and amenities

It is laid out in two separate but adjacent divisions, one of 31ac and the other 63ac. The farmyard is on the 31ac division.

The land is good quality.

It includes a six-unit herringbone milking parlour, in need of some modernising. There are 56 cubicles and a three-bay slatted shed. This division is made up of three large fields, subdivided into smaller fenced paddocks.

The slatted shed is in good condition.

The 63ac block is laid out in six main fields which are 11ac, 11ac, 13ac, 10ac, 9ac and 8ac in size. A hardcore road and paths give good access to all fields.

The leasing agreement covers the land and the farmyard and it runs until 2027.

The yard has a useful chute with catwalk, head gate and backing gate.
